These dark colors don't work for my studio with lots of natural light. Please, get rid of the restrictions in the color/brightness range of the GUI...
Please please please give us the option back.

Someone Please tell me how this is a choice. This is the most drab and uncreative color palate i can imagine. Like someone smeared mud over the entire page

Prefer lighter Theme as well. That's one of the reasons why I am not updating from C9 to C 9.5.
Steinberg should test if the reworked color preferences work for the light color schemes. There are a lot of users here, who
prefer lighter color scheme.

Yeah I like some of the new features of 9.5 but if I can't be comfortable looking at the screen I'm not going to pay to upgrade

There should be choice for any scheme people prefer.
But i actually like the colour improvements, less light emitted, less strain on eyes, less damaging blue light.
These light schemes emit too much blue light and DAMAGE your eyes. Less contrast, less light, much better in the long run.

Everyone's eyesight is different we should have choices we had before. Every environment is different. Monitoring at loud volumes is detrimental to your hearing but Steinberg has not put a governor on the output volume. I can't stand the lack of fidelity of MP3 and iTunes but that's a choice people make just as they listen to earbuds too loud. When Steinberg starts to dictate what the visual environment should be under the ruse of saving our eyesight I'll be gone after more than 15 years of loyalty. GIVE US BACK OUR OPTIONS PLEASE

Sure, that’s what I’m saying, if one wants to double it’s daw as sunbed, that should be possible, but for me personally I’m happy that there is focus on these issues

It seems that a lot of users are not happy with design choices steinberg makes - lots of GUI Inconsistencies (very good summary here viewtopic.php?f=252&t=127342), limited color schemes (viewtopic.php?f=252&t=127482), bitmap based UI, ugly not scalable fonts, -
it's time to hire some UI professional and rework and unify UI - something for C10 next year.

More like it's time to grow a little more patient because they're obviously in the process of updating the entire interface. Did you not notice that they already got rid of a bunch of old styled windows, buttons and knobs in Cubase 9.5?

Also pretty much everything listed in that first thread is either a matter of opinion or completely obvious (but they either haven't gotten to it yet or they're waiting for a scheduled feature revamp so they don't have to do the work twice).

I see it as reverting to what was before. You could make it as dark and drab as you wanted before, so I don't see lightening it as a 'development' 🤣

Well to me the interface of C9.5 is yes all black, your right, it is not that colourfull. And the way in preferences to set colors is ok, but it is all dark. One guy on the forum said he used a sort of brown colour, so i changed that in prefs. To me black is good, or lets say cubase 9.5 has a dark interface. And i like it because i like black and it seems i can view it a lot longer time then brighter colours. So for me it is all fine, my cubase now looks like an old vintage dark black-brown colour. I like it. Being said that yes, you cannot seem to get Cubase 9.5 with white colors or anything, and that is hopefully to be changed. Mainly hopefully mr steinberg can make a cubase that really lets you setup the color you really want. The same goes for the way 9.5 is like, windows and opening or closing is devided into things that has gotten way better to work with. But opening en closing effects windows, while i like the tabbed interface more. (i hate windows that open and close and disappear behind echt other). So C9.5 is quite ok with all of it. I like it good, so i understand if there are users that do not have what they wanted or haven had in the past and lost it, specially colours.

I came from SX3 and C6, so C9 is quite good for me because i like thay way its all dark, so when i revert back to SX3 and C6, i can favour C9.5 over all.
But i understand Cubase overall should have colour schema's that revert back to the looks of older versions ?

I don't have the feeling that design-wise Steinberg is either listening or noticing where the most important shortcomings are.
Instead they optimise things (like 9.5 custom color feature), nobody asked them for.
By trying to make it better they make things kind of worse.
Saying that, I must admit that I still work with C9 -
but one the the main reasons for that is this dark scheme custom color thing they introduced in 9.5

Tried everything. There is no way to lighten the darkness
in general yes there is. The OP wants to be able to control more areas. Which I agree with by the way. But I did this one as a joke in about 1 minute. Getting a light theme is easily possible, getting a contrasting light theme because of specific areas that can't be customized is difficult.

There is no way to really lighten the mixer GUI or the Inspector. if so please show me how to attain the view on the left of my attachment, which is C9 while the view on the right is C9.5, as light as i could get it

the mixconsole is not fixable .. as we keep saying, there are specific areas that need to be exposed. The color choice system isn't really the problem. It's a bit unnecessarily limited, but the real issue is the choice of what to color.
